DJ Hero Launch

I KNEW IT.

I knew it wouldn’t be long before Kim Kardashian jumped on the Balmain bandwagon.

For many of you this will be the final straw, as you couldn’t even bare to see Beyonce in Christophe Decarnin designs.

I love the zebra print embellished Balmain Fall 2008 jacket, but I HATE those ripped turned up jeans she insisted on wearing with it. They’re way too casual and way too scruffy for such a jacket.

Disappointment doesn’t even cover it.

Rihanna wore this jacket on “Star Academy” last year.

Taraji P. Henson got into the rock n’ roll spirit of this event ticking all the boxes to present herself as an archetypal rock chick:

Leather jacket – check, black leather pants – check, sexy lace top – check.

Black strappy sandals complete the rebellious look.

Ali Larter kept is very casual in also wearing black leather pants, a taupe tee, and a stunning textured clutch.

A multitude of necklaces punched up her look.

Dania Ramirez could have pulled off this strapless denim jumpsuit, if she has purchased it in her size.

The cute jumpsuit is just too small for her twins, and looks really uncomfortable.

A nameplate necklace, pearls, and a pink feathered bag complete this look.

Whilst everyone was on a rock chic vibe, Aisha Tyler opted to keep her look sexy and sweet. She opted for an ombre satin dress, with an oversized clutch.

Social Events Of The Week

Operation Smile Presents the 2009 Smile Event, New York

Ciara wore an ensemble from the Halston Fall 2009 collection, consisting of grey genie pants, a silk tuxedo jacket, and a python scarf.

The scarf is the very strong stand-out piece of this look, which I never expected to see on the red carpet, but Ciara makes it work.

Her look was completed with a pair of fierce multi-strappy Emilio Pucci Fall 2009 heels.

InStyle Hair Issue Launch Party, New York

Ali Larter is very pretty in pink wearing a Notte by Marchesa strapless silk ruffle dress, with black strappy sandals.

The dress is youthful, cute, and sassy, but I would’ve loved to have seen someone like Selena Gomez, or Miley Cyrus wear this dress.

Lisa Edelstein also wore a strapless Notte by Marchesa dress.

Her metallic animal print dress, had a black chiffon overlay, and was accented with a gold woven tie at her waist.

She completed her look with taupe Fendi bow-front peep-toes.

Socialite Olivia Palermo, adds some oomph to her patterned organza Notte by Marchesa tank dress with a black sequined Diane von Furstenberg jacket, and T-bar shoes.

“Management” Screening, New York

*sighs & gives up*

Jennifer Aniston walked the red carpet at this event which was co-hosted by Tommy Hilfiger wearing a grey dress, grey tights, and grey booties.

OK it’s not black, but it might as well be. The dress is actually quite sexy, but the all over grey just makes this looks soooooo boring.

“The Brothers Bloom” Screening, New York

Rachel Weisz went for a low key, yet still very feminine look, wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2009 printed dress, which was ruched down the front

She paired her dress with a gold box clutch, and black Jimmy Choo strappy sandals.

11th Annual “Tribute To The Human Spirit” Awards Gala, LA

Mark & Spencer’s campaign girl Myleene Klass, wore an electric blue Preen Line Tricks cotton drill dress, which hugged every inch of her curves, which she’s so rightfully proud of.

“Love & Dancing” LA Premiere

Amy Smart is wearing a geometric print Halston Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress. This dress may have cost hundreds of dollars, but unfortunately she make is look very bargain basement.

2009 Rainforest Alliance Gala, New York

Gisele Bundchen was a vision of pure gorgeousness, wearing a gunmetal grey backless Versace gown, which plunged so wickedly.

The orange earrings really pop.

Social Events Of The Week

The Hermitage 20/21 Dinner, London

Oh Dasha Zhukova, Best Dressed Of The Week was going to be difficult enough without you arriving at this event looking spectacular.

The Russian beauty wore a two tone Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless bustier dress, with a gathered skirt, which Claire Danes wore to the 2009 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

Champagne heels complete the look.

Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Dinner

Silver harem pants, and a black turtle neck on some would look tragic.

On Diane Kruger? Magnificent.

I’m not even going to attempt this look, as she owns it.

Debra Messing on the other hand, doesn’t have my admiration. Instead I will give her my pity.

Nothing good is happening from the neck down.

Mary-Kate Olsen wore a loose, beaded tunic dress, which one would assume is vintage, but it’s actually from Nina Ricci’sFall 2009 collection.

LOVE the nude make-up, and the way she accessorized with a thick black and gold belt, to give the dress shape.

She added a pop of red via her Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Kerry Washington opted for a classic tweed Chanel Spring 2009 boat neck dress, with a silver clutch and eggplant heels.

“Obsessed” Screening, New York

I love the detail of the origami folds on Ali Larter’s strapless cream satin Blumarine Fall 2009 dress, plus her Balenciaga strappy sandals, but the hair ruins everything.

Tous Boutique Opening, Barcelona

Kylie arrived at the Tous boutique opening in Barcelona, wearing in a floor-sweeping, black strapless Herve Leger dress with white stripes at the bust for a maritime-inspired look.

Social Events Of The Week

“The Informers” Los Angeles Premiere

I really like Jessica Stroup. She always looks great on the red carpet, and I don’t feel like she’s trying too hard.

Last night she was all zipped up in her Elise Øverland Fall 2009 teal satin mini dress, which she wore with Camilla Skovgaard peep-toe, cut-out booties.

She’s still got it.

Kim Basinger has obviously been drinking out of the same fountain of youth, as Iman and Demi Moore.

The actress wore a simple Hugo Boss black pant suit, but it’s her hair and make-up that wow me.

Grey Gardens LA Premiere

Ali Larter wore a very deep plunging navy embellished Brian Reyes Spring 2009 dress.

I love the dress and matching satin heels, but why the waiter tuxedo jacket?

Jessica Lange looked delightful in a dress with a white crossover top, and a taupe skirt with stunning embellished details.

PaleyFest09 “Dollhouse” Premiere, LA

Eliza Dushku looks delightful in her Moschino Cheap and Chic Spring 2009 lilac sleeveless dress with crystal beading details.

Sexy, yet sophisticated.

The actress completes her look with YSL Tribute sandals.

10th Anniversary Scenarios USA Awards And Gala, New York

Rosario Dawson matches her Bottega Veneta Pre-Fall 2009 maroon belted dress, with large earrings for this colour co-ordinated look.

I wouldn’t have worn the boots, but she makes them work.

“Tyson” Los Angeles Premiere

I’m loving Elise Neal bangs. I’ve always wanted blunt bangs, but I always change my mind once in the stylist chair.

Elise wore her champagne satin tiered embellished dress, under a black satin blazer. She complimented her look with animal print heels.

Alani “Lala” Vazquez wore a short, but very chic Stella McCartney Spring 2009 strapless white dress, which had a draped detail on the skirt.

I love the multi-coloured diamante clutch, but her dress is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. She should have hoisted it up a bit more.

Bergdorf Goodman’s Party for Bottega Veneta, New York

Julianna Moore wore a black asymmetrical dress from Bottega Veneta’s Fall 2009 collection, which had a large ruffle going down one side. Booties and a black clutch from the same collection complete the look.

Rosario Dawson opted for a lighter Spring look, wearing a mellow yellow Bottega Veneta Spring 2009 dress. A metallic clutch and strappy sandals completed the look.

Chanel Iman wore a black leather Bottega Veneta dress, whilst her fellow catwalker Arlenis Sosa, wore the same dress and carried the same clutch walked the Spring 2009 runway show in coincidentally.

The Art of Elysium 2nd Annual Heaven Gala

Eva Mendes had an incredible 2008 on the red carpet, so I am glad she has started 2009 with a bang.

The stunning actress looks outstanding wearing a nude Christian Dior Spring 2009 haltered gown.

The keyhole belted gown has crystals embellished on the top half of the dress, and a long flowing skirt.

This is a poke in the ribs for all those who say my girl plays it safe.

Kirsten Dunst was absent from the red carpet for most of 2008, but it looks like during that down time she didn’t lose any of her flair.

Her silk Valentino gown, had a ruffled collar, and a delicate chiffon petal front bib.

Kiki is back, and looking better than ever.

Ali Larter’s black silk Ralph Lauren Spring 2009 gown is simply magnificent. She carries the gown, which has a gold embellished neckline, with both style and grace.

She is a designer’s delight with a lean body and beautiful face. I could not gush about how much I love this enough.

I’m a little disappointed in Kate Bosworth’s pick of this black leaf detailed Nina Ricci Spring 2009 dress.

Olivier Theyskens’ Nina Ricci Spring 2009 collection was full of these short at the front, long at the back dresses, which just didn’t float my boat.

Kate of all people should have made me love it, but even she couldn’t.

Sophia Bush was exquisitely styled in a white strapless Monique Lhuillier gown. Simplicity at its finest, and I don’t think she has ever looked so good.

Her silver jewels perfected this already perfect look.

Joy Bryant wore yellow Missoni maxi dress, with gold accessories.

This girl never gets it wrong.

I don’t know about you, but there is something not quite right about the fit of Nicole Richie’s Jasmine di Milo Spring 2008 dress.

The top half is heavily embroidered, which no doubt would make it quite heavy. So it’s no wonder that the bodice sits quite low down on her.

I can also see her tit-tape, which is never a good thing.

Marisa Tomei practically lives on the red carpet at the moment, but when you’re hot, you’re hot.

Keeping the same hairstyle from her red carpet appearance earlier in the day, the actress changed into this black and white strapless dress.

The dress had a black bow detailing the bodice, and a white chiffon shirt with black script across it.

Rachel Griffiths wear the colour of the moment – electric blue.

Her 50s silk blue cocktail dress from Decades, is matched with a purple Daniel Swarovski clutch and eggplant heels.

Milla Jovovich wears a headband Mischa Barton would approve of, with her black, yellow and white Pucci keyhole gown.

I hate to jump on the Rumer Willis bashing bandwagon, but she really needs to look back at how great she looked during the House Bunny LA premiere, and try to reintroduce that look to the red carpet. Time after time she gets it so wrong.

Nothing is good here.

Courteney Cox Arquette wears an dress that is not black. Shocker.

Amy Smart wears this red Yves Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 2008 gown with braided detail on the front, which was worn last year by Nicole Kidman whilst she was pregnant with her first child.

I love the colour on Amy, but the style feels too old for her.

Amber Heard went all out in this blood red Dolce & Gabbana corseted dress.

It is a very bold dress, and I admire her for having the guts to wear it, but the feathered bloodied hem is kinda creepy.

A new year, a new darker ‘do for Brittany Snow.

Her Dolce & Gabbana strapless black corseted dress, makes her hips look wider than I assume they are.

I would have liked to have seen something much more slinkier on Brittany.

I can’t remember the last time I saw a high pony on the red carpet.

Shannen Doherty wears a sheer black dress with white floral appliqués. Not the best dressed, but it works for her.
